Options for Full-Day Services for Children Participating in Head Start . Parent Fees

03/07/1995

Parent fees are assessed only for children funded by the GCC program, when gross monthly family income exceeds 50 percent of the state median income ($39,000). Parents pay full-time fees when their child receives more than 35 hours of care per week; otherwise, they pay part-time fees (the program does not use hourly fees). Fees are levied only for the portion of the care funded by GCC; parents never pay fees for Head Start (or SPS) service.
